Today I used my new “Bench cookies” for the first time. I have to say they are cool! I was working on a new router table top, I needed to flush trim the edges and do some sanding, I had my workmate sitting there so I set the top down and thought I would have to clamp it down. I remebered my cookies and gave them a try, Impressive! if you don’t have a set you should pick some up.
So while discussing bills and such over dinner last night, LOML is leafing through the Home Depot sales circular, and finds R30 unfaced fiberglass roll insulation for cheap… More discussion, and I get informed that we WILL be buying the insulation and we are going NOW… (She saw the February electric bill, I HATE having electric heat!)... So I get over to the BORG, grab a flat cart, and wheel back to where the insulation is… I start loading the cart with the 6 roll cases o...

As I sit here at my kitchen table I notice that my neighbor across the street has decided he needs to park sideways in the lower part of his driveway and partly on the street. I ponder if I should wake his rear end now or after the UPS Freight delivery truck crunches his bumper. Most people deliver a baby in a hospital or a home delivery unit (i.e. bathtub, go figure!) But I wait here, patiently updating my friends on FaceBook every 15 minutes…NOPE, not here yet! ::sigh:: This is goi...
I have been anxious to get the cameras out and do some more video so I did an update from the American Craftsman Workshop. Thanks to the following guys for helping me get my own site started. It is a work in progress at the moment, but they really helped me figure a lot of things out sooner than later. Marc Spagnuolo – thewoodwhisperer.com Matt Vanderlist – mattsbasementworkshop.com Brian Havens – brianhavens.us Troy Bouffard – birchhillwoodcrafts.com ...
Dustbunnie’s accident had me searching randomly on Google for riving knifes. In the process, I ran across this article on Finewoodworking (http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/25130/man-wins-big-money-in-tablesaw-lawsuit) Man hurts himself on a table saw and sues the manufacturer because they didn’t license the SawStop technology. What was more interesting was the hundreds of comments on the story. I don’t know which bothered me more, the ones about tort reform, or the ones that said ...
Well I just donated another one of my large rocking horses for a silent auction for the cancer society locally here in Lafayette, Ga
But last night, late last night, actually early in the morning, I became paranoid about a little bit of a screw that remained in the router table top. If you are interested in why I thought that this bit of a screw might ultimately lead to a horrible and tragic death, then feel free to read on. http://bit.ly/dcSmmx
For those of you that are actually following along with me on this project (as deranged as you must be…) you may remember my last post, wherein I managed to crack one of the leg boards right down the middle: I was initially going to scrap that, but a few messages got me thinking. It probably won’t really affect the structural strength all that much, especially if I orient the cracked face so it doesn’t hold a mortise. So I decided to go ahead with that leg. Four-square...
In this episode I talk about the router.
